Hallmark,  it's automatically opening them as I go and I'd prefer it didn't, where is the setting to change this please?

Many thanks
Jane :-)

So glad I saw this.

 

Hallmark, could you give me step by step instructions please on how to transfer all my Dad's email from my own pc to his, once he has moved and his computer is set up.  Presumably I need to export it, but I can't see the setting.  And if there's anything else I need to do in advance.  Although I can "remote in" to his computer if absolutely necessary I'd rather not, and I can't get to visit them before the move, which is the end of next week.

 
Many thanks
Jane :-)


If you have your Dad's emails you can just Save them to memory stick...

You see how easy it was to use T/Bird...

Can your father do the same and get his Virgin emails before account is closed?

Sorry to see that....

If you have his email and password you can add his account and get emails from Virgin

That's what I did this morning.  All his VM emails have now been downloaded onto my computer and can be accessed using thunderbird.  I want to copy them over to his computer once they've moved house, so he can still read them without having to visit me.  I realise I will need to install thunderbird onto his computer, what I need instructions for is exporting from mine onto a memory stick or similar, and then importing from the memory stick onto Dad's.
